economy of the reconstruction of the malian state then becomes the next challenge. because if there is an incentive for southern military officers and northern rebels to remain linked because of that contraband issue, we will have to overcome that in order for civilian leaders like yourself who come to the floor and then reconstitute the malian state. if that's the case, then our challenge is considerably more complex than what i thought it would be at the beginning of this two-hour conversation. now, this conversation has value because we now have rearticulated a particular challenge, the political economy that underlies the future reconstitution of the malian state. going to your question about niger, niger has been advantage into the present moment because there's not the degree of animosity in niger between the tuareg people and the other ethnic groups within mali. and furthermore, the new president of mali specifically designated -- niger, specifically designated as his minister of defense, someone from the tuareg community, which then provided for prime minister betwe

. the economy, the oil industry, electricity and different things. so when those o things were unhinged, not only did sectarian plussations come up, but they weren't a civil war waiting to happen. they weren't as strong as that. but when you cut everything else, you suddenly cause things to happen. if you think about it, you're a civil servant who lives in baghdad, and you've got a job in the government, you're in the baath party or something like that. you lose your job either because you're a baathist or things happen, and you lose your job. now you're live anything baghdad and you don't have electricity, and it's 125 in the summer. now, live in a place where it's 125 degrees, you have no job, you've got a wife, several children. several things have happened. one, you didn't like saddam hussein, but you had a job, you could take care of your family, and you didn't have foreigners driving around looking at though they are occupiers whether they are or not. so you get all the negatives of seeing a foreign opposing power and none of the positives of having saddam hussein overthrown. life

with the leader of the opposition talked about the economy, he sounds just like an extraordinary undertaker looking forward to a hard one to? does he not accept that you cannot get out of a debt crisis by borrowing more money? >> my honorable friend makes a very good point. the fact is the economy that we inherited was completely unbalanced. it was based on housing but it was based on finance. it was based on government spending and those based on immigration. those were for incredibly unstable pillars for sustained economic growth. what we that it is a major recovery operation. that operation is still underway but you can see in the new jobs created in the private sector businesses that are expanding them into new people signing up the businesses we are making progress. >> george galloway.

, as white americans were writing the escalator of upward mobility, thanks to booming economy and federal support for homeownership and college education, african-americans were still living in a segregated world in which they were largely denied virtually all of these benefits. that only changed beginning in the late '60s after the passage of civil rights and other laws come and really into the early '70s before mortgages and so forth became available. so african-americans began putting their first foot on the escalator at the very earliest in the late '60s, after 30 years of whites moving from a te lower middle class to the middle class and beyond am only fended african-americans begin. and it was about that time that the escalator begin to get kind of creaky. and wages begin to stagnate and unique jobs and manufacturing began to disappear. and african-americans are buying homes in precisely the communities, the inner cities, that are being abandoned by everybody else. so what you see is not that happens, but past racism and bad timing that explains this profound difference. and just so

of the aca and other changes that are going on, the economy has some to do with it, we've lowered the growth rate in medicare below cpi. that has never happened. we have really lowered the growth of medicare. and in doing that we are creating tremendous savings for the government, but we are not hurting access to care right now. we need to preserve that. if we achieve greater savings on paper out of the medicare system, but destroy that system for people, that is not an outcome that is a good outcome for our country. and i think is much private sector innovation as there is an continue to be, let's be honest but if the private sector can do this, we have a functioning health care system outside medicare, and we don't. and we do because it takes all of us working together. most insurance companies today use payment systems which was developed through the medicare program with government. we've got to figure out how we can continue to collaboratively work, and hopefully take politics out of some of what medicare has become an move forward in a way that really improves our health care system. >

europe, who will be talking about resilient dynamism in europe, european economy, and the eurozone. i'm going to start with prime minister mario monty. if you look at the panel, we have a real rich tapestry. we have big countries, we have smaller countries. i did not say small. we have debted countries and credited countries. we have countries in the eurozone and outside the eurozone. so that they'll talk about their own distinct national perspective in the european economy. so prime minister monty, i think it was the "financial times" that a year ago said that two people needed to save europe and the eurozone. they both were called mario. do tell us last year we felt as though europe and the eurozone on the edge. this year some confidence has come back, the big story is where is the growth going to come from? so it will be interesting to hear your perspective on how you see what you have accomplished over the last year as prime minister, and what you see in the year ahead including those elections. >> yes, there are elections i understand in at least two large european countries this
